This paper presents a wide-area control approach to improve the transient stability of the power systems while also damping the post-fault inter-area oscillations. The proposed approach employs a nonlinear Kalman filter to estimate the inter-area modes using phasor measurement units (PMUs). The wide-area control system then uses the estimated inter-area dy-namics through the developed control algorithms to improve the first swing and damping stability of the system. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated on the simplified Australian test system with different load models including induction motors and the results show significant improvement in the stability of the system by simply adding the wide-area control signals to the available controllers in the system. The application of the pro-posed wide-area control system is shown to be feasible on realistic systems by improving the system stability and efficiency.
